Ryan Banks (Jason Priestley) is a struggling movie star. His best friend, and agent, Todd (Bradley Cooper) creates a TV show called "I Want to Marry Ryan Banks" in hopes of saving his faltering career. The show works much like the Bachelor TV show, with fifteen beautiful women competing for Ryan's love and affection.
Charlie becomes a contestant when her sister and brother-in-law submit an audition tape for her. Like all the other girls, Charlie is picked in order to help boost Ryan's image. She is then contacted at her sister's Boston bar by Ryan himself, and decides to participate on the show.
Once in the house, Charlie becomes fast friends with her roommate Lauren, an aspiring actress who's only using the show to get exposure. She also discovers how "reality" TV shows work, with multiple takes and editing.
As Charlie thinks she's falling for Ryan, Todd is feeding him lines. When Charlie discovers the man she's in love with is really Todd, she tries to quit the show, only to find out that it would breach her contract. As "America's Choice", Charlie and Lauren become the two finalists, despite sabotaging her own chances by changing her sweet and easy-going behavior while on a trip with Ryan.
With Ryan's help, Todd manages to get Charlie back, and they got married one year later.
The movie was re-released to DVD in 2012 under the name Reality of Love in an attempt to spark rentals from the popular Redbox machines.
